‘Automatic seat cover up’ installed in western style toilets at CSMT in Mumbai for better hygiene

National News

Mumbai, Nov 24 : The Central Railway has come up with an ‘automatic seat cover up’ arrangement in western style toilets at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) in Mumbai to ensure the seat covers always remain in “lift up position” ensuring better hygiene for passengers, an official said.

In public toilets where western commode seats are there, most of the people do not lift up the seat cover before urinating, which makes it unhygienic for other people to use it, Central Railway’s (CR) chief public relations officer Shivaji Sutar said on Wednesday.


In the new automatic seat arrangement, which acts mechanically (in non-electric mode), a spring action keeps the seat cover always in ‘lift up position’, the official said.
